I have been struggling so much the past almost year with adverse reactions to foods. It all started when I came down with a bad chest infection, after I recovered with 3 weeks of anti biotics something strange started happening and very frightening. I was sucking on a red hard candy and this sudden wave of dizziness and headache came over me. I was puzzled and scared. I had no clue what was happening. But I decided that maybe I should stop eating red candies. Well, that was just the beginning of a huge cascade of events that were to follow. Every day from that point on I began reacting in this way to more and more foods, next it was coffee, then soda, then honey, then milk and anything containing milk, at which point I made a trip to see my GP and he ran all blood, all negative. Refered me to an allergy specialist who wouldn't even test me because I don't get hives. I ended up calling the ambulance not long after that, having partial seizures now after eating. I tried all organic and fresh and I don't know of a single food I can eat without almost collapsing. The ER doctors say panick attack, now I am taking Ativan twice a day while it is preventing the seizures, I am still reacting. I am at my wits end now, can't go anywhere alone unless I fast, even ONE sip of juice and waves of dizziness go through my whole body. MRI, normal. CT scan, normal. What am I supposed to do now?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
